They're gone now, but they left behind a copy of Through The Looking-Glass, bookmarked on the second chapter. You find a message there - and with it, the opportunity for one last conversation.

I Knew You Would Find This is a short interactive fiction Twine game experimenting with the mechanic of spelling out a message using individual letters as links, as opposed to linking to new passages. I'm very excited to share it with the world, and I hope you enjoy it!

Thank you to Grim Baccaris for Twine coding help, Riley CJ Kenway and Anna Webster for playtesting, and AK Fedeau and Xalavier Nelson Jr., for listening to me yell about this game.

Hi Nessa,


I've had this bookmarked on twitter for a bit, waiting for a moment of free time when I could sit down with a cup of coffee and really enjoy this. And I did! Very much! What a clever way to think about the link structure in twine.  Kind of felt like tuning into wheel of fortune, watching the letters fill in and all. I clicked them out of order a few times, just for fun, to see if I could figure it out the message before it was fully revealed. 


[SPOILERS]

I went with the ending about moving on, and it was very cathartic for me! Very well done. I can't wait to check out more of your work!
